Located on the southern bank of the Yellow River in Henan Province, Xin’an County is one of the primary locations where the Heluo culture (located in the basin of the Yellow and Luo rivers) developed. The area also boasts intriguing natural scenery. Xin’an offers both the simple elegance of the signs of the divinity Wang Qiao and the immensely charming Han-era (206 BCE - 220 CE) Hangu Pass. It offers the thousands of rolling green peaks of the Qingyao Mountains and the unique natural landscape of Wanshan Lake (“Ten Thousand Mountains Lake”). Xin’an is a traveler's paradise of mountains, water, lakes, islands, and culturally important sights.
